About Me

As Faculty Development Coordinator at MacEwan University, I get to assist faculty in their pursuit of excellence. I run workshops in student engagement, classroom assessment, course (re)design, and the integration of technology and social media in teaching.

I have nearly twenty years of experience teaching courses in postcolonial literatures and literary theory, with a strong emphasis on the literatures of Canada. My book Sanctioned Ignorance: the politics of knowledge production and the teaching of the literatures of Canada was published in 2013 by the University of Alberta Press.

Until joining MacEwan in 2011, I was Director of the University of Vermont’s Canadian Studies Program and an Assistant Professor in the Department of English. Between 1996 and 2009, I also helped to run Northwest Passages, a Canadian literature online bookstore and information resource I co-founded in 1996.
